Going for the Best Freshman Hack or Socially Useful Hack
Don't know what mods to take, not many seniors to ask
What it does
Moddo recommends modules for your next semester based on the modules you have taken. It finds a senior's record in the database who is the closest match to you and suggests their combination.
How I built it
I used Shiny which relies on R, and several packages I found on the web. I also used Google Sheets as a "cloud database"
Challenges I ran into
Trying to webscrap twitter based on the user's input modules, uploading it on a server because my free server ran out of free hours for the month when I was testing. I did not manage to finish it on time.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
My first ever project
What I learned
